Nebel 2016 Riesling, Rheinhessen
Highly aromatic, this wine shows pronounced aromas of green apple and ripe white peach. The palate is off-dry with lively acidity makes for a juicy, balanced palate marked by bright fruit. It finishes clean with stony minerality.
FOOD PAIRING: Ceviche
WINEMAKING: Vintage 2016 in the Rheinhessen started off with a cool, wet spring and ended up with an unseasonably warm fall, particularly in September. The warm, dry conditions allowed these Riesling grapes to stay on the vine until mid-October. Temperature controlled fermentation at cool temperatures was used to enhance the aromatic qualities of this wine. Short sur-lie aging added texture and complexity to the mouthfeel.
